Mămăligă is Romanian corn porridge and one of the most popular traditional foods in the country. It is often confused with polenta. In the past, this dish of boiled cornmeal was mostly cooked by peasants, often instead of bread. They would prepare it in a round-bottomed kettle known as ceaun, and after it cooled down and hardened, the porridge would get sliced with a piece of string. Mămăligă is often topped with butter, sour cream or cascaval cheese. Another version of serving this porridge includes crushing it in a bowl of hot milk. Nowadays, this simple and rural meal can also be found in modern and upscale restaurants.
